Homegoing / Yaa Gyasi, 305 pgs.

The setting is Ghana in the 18th century.  Two half sisters are born and follow different paths.  One marries a British slaver, one is sold into slavery.  Each chapter follows an offspring from the previous generation.  Both sides run into issues and strife.  This story follows through to present day.  Some chapters are harder to read than others.  I mostly liked the book but the short exposure to many of the characters left me wanting more information about several.
